Do you feel a call to live justly, but don’t know where to start?
We’ve got a brand new, exciting opportunity for you and a team of UK volunteers to deepen your understanding of justice in the Bible, in the incredible country of Haiti.
You’ll be joining with our Tearfund partners in Haiti and together with a local group of Haitian young adults, sharing learning from the Live Justly resource and getting to outwork this practically in the local community.
You’ll be tackling topics around advocacy, prayer, consumption, generosity, creation care and relationships.
Be prepared for in-depth discussions and a chance to turn your thoughts into actions as you head out and serve in the local Haitian community.
Who are we looking for?
Young adults (aged 18 - 35 years old) who are flexible and adaptable. You’ll need to be able to commit to one hour weekly Skype studies of the Live Justly course while you’re in the UK, from January to March. These will either be run by the team leader, or a Tearfund member of staff. Plus committing to spending 11 days putting the learning into practice in Haiti.
The whole experience will challenge you personally and stretch your faith. You will experience how the local church is at the heart of tackling poverty and injustice. Plus you will have the chance to show God’s love in practical ways as you visit and learn from inspirational communities.
Haiti is a French speaking country so a knowledge of some French is an advantage.
What will you be doing?
- Attending one hour weekly skype sessions from January - March to study the Live Justly material together.
- Joining with a Haitian young adult group, to share learning that you have both gathered from studying the ten sessions of the Live Justly course
- Planning action steps together on how justice can become a solid part of your everyday lifestyle
- Heading out into the community and serving local people living in extreme poverty. This could include training churches in disaster risk reduction, training youth in their communities around child protection, supporting recycling programs, helping with street clean up, planting gardens, and much more.
The fundraising amount mentioned above includes pre-departure training, insurance, debrief, a medical package, administrative costs and in-country travel, accommodation and food.
Please note, flights, visas and vaccinations are not included.
